    to clarify my vote I mean that while I like the general idea of sagas and like the ideas CA did here (MTW2 like tecruitment and such)\
    I do not really like it still has the same silly 1VS1 combat from since S2 and still rquire generals for armies

    Well after installing the game, I had a problem with black screens in battles, I uninstalled the game then reinstalled and I am happy to report that the game is working fine on my new fangled computational device....
    GTX 1080 TI,
    i7 7700k Kaby Lake,
    Samsung M.2 500GB SSD,
    32GB ram.

    it has to be said I am not a sword and spears fan, much preferring gunpowder and muskets as in Empire and Napoleon.
    However given that this is about the British Isles and all that, it peaked my interest somewhat.

    I am happy to say that this is C.A. at their best and in my opinion this is a polished game, from the stylised unit cards to how it runs on my computational device.
    Ecstatic to see C.A. getting back to historical titles too (about bally time)
    And all that.

    40 euros for a game that could easily be Attila DLC in the half price?
    There are moments (in history), in which a nation owes,
    if it wants to be considered as a great one, to be able to fight.
    Even without hope of winning. Just because it has to.

    I don't have a problem with saga games. It can give us a lot of different eras and timeframe and even maybe a testing ground for bigger games (bugs, new animation,....). While i am just like Brig a gunpowder fan (especially Victorian Age), i don't mind those kind of games. Maybe i should buy it when there is a steam sale or something like that or with a whole package deal (with all DLC's) that is cheap.

    # I Tried Thrones of Britannia myself even i did not buy it yet(tried it on my friend pc) because i was afraid of wasting my money for it as i am a foreign student,However. i likes it but not that much it most likely be Attila dlc not separate game as it most likely to me more logically and makes Sense , i myself want to have every 6 -8 months thing to test in weekends or summer-winter Vacation a Long New Adventurous Campaign to play. that for Thrones of Britannia.

    #Three Kingdoms : its Scene is not all that and can be represented by a mod (if the Map Modification is Allowed for Modders) to save time and effort for CA ,it just seems pointless and waste of resources why on earth i care about Chinese warfare it seems so so ethnic and i will not get motivated to play it only i f i read some china History ,Watched a Documentary on China , Love The Mummy 3 : Rise of the dragon tomb or I am a Chinese. thus it would be better to be a dlc to a game like shogun 2 to revive it a bit.

    # What I want to See Next Game for CA ? : my best choice is a Victorian Era or WW1 , Both is Quiet Easy for CA to Tackle look at Empire its Fantastic ! , but why this Era ? bec its a Whole World Map which is The Best New Step For A Total War Just Make For Us This and Develop it with dlcs for Two years to Become a Masterpiece, Just Imagine The Depth of WW1 Diplomacy or the Fighting on many Theaters and so much enemies while depending on tactics and diplomacy to forge a legacy for a nation, you will not focus on a certain clash of that continent or that ethnic war of clans !, You will Get Evolved of Whole earth on The Map and Try Endless Warfare to Defend everyone's' Homeland or forge it from the ashes of others.

    P.S: this is Just what is in my mind and my Friends too,Just Listen to Us CA !, Did not we waste our childhood and teenage for supporting you ! ,cant you support our weekends with our needs ?

    TOB has a serious core gameplay flaw. The game start date should have been set before the invasion of the great heathen army and then you have a period of time to prepare before all hell breaks loose and huge viking hordes rampage through britannia. As part of this Scandinavia and possibly northern france and germany should have been included on the map to help create a better viking experience where you can raid england and then head home to use your treasures to secure the thrones of norway or denmark.

    TOB oddly chose to start their game after all of the interesting stuff happened and that is the reason it is getting mixed reviews on steam, there is no main conflict to deal with. Its basically a boring sandbox mode. After loving what CA did with Attila and the warhammer games I was really surprised they didnt incorporate the really cool gameplay dynamics of invasions and other story-like gameplay ideas that made those games so great.

    My opinion on these things are that I don't have formed any opinions on it... And - to be honest - it seems unlikely that this will change, due to lack of general interest. I mean, soon enough it will just be "old news" anyways and (virtually) abandoned accordingly by CA - this in order to make place for the next product they are trying to plug. I have simply seen this cycle repeated too many times to drum up some genuine interest in this stuff, once again....

    My main issue with ToB it's that in my opinion 40 € are too much for such a product, all in all it's just an overextended add-on to Attila franchise, sold at an astronomical cost!

    Agreed. It looks interesting and I'd like to play it one day, but not for 40€.

    Agreed, unless you are a modder and want to use the models or you have money to throw away its not worth worth getting at its current price
